Swift Transportation Swift Trucking, Workmans Compensation, Hurt in sleeper Phoenix, Arizona
*General Comment: Government lets them get away with anything.
Swift in Texas does not have Workmans Comp!!!!!
I was sleeping in my truck on October 17, 2012 just after dropping a load at the Kroeger plant in Memphis, TN. I literally had 2 minutes to shut down before I ran out of my 14 hours. My company had been hassling for my excessive idle so
I thought I would try to comply with its request. I was told I would be fired if I didn't. During My ten hour sleep I was stung by a wasp and got a MRSA infection due to the nasty truck they gave me 2 days before. I had a heart attack due to the infection and was in the hospital for 20 days.
To make a long story short Swift denied my medical and out of work payments because they said I was at no greater risk of being stung than anyone in the general public and also stated that I was not performing an official function of my job while in the sleeper berth. I am still an employee of Swift but I can't go back to work until I see a cardiologist that I don't have the money for and I'm also homeless.
I can't even sue them because we have mandatory arbitration. Holy sh*t!!! Does this company get away with every scam it pulls?
